It’s back to school mode with the Nokia Asha 202. If you’re looking for an affordable feature phone to wear and tear on a daily basis, the Asha 202 is packed with a number of features that are of late, quite impressive. Due to Nokia’s partnership with EA Games, the 202 comes bundled with 40 titles you can dabble with, from Tetris to Bejeweled to Need for Speed. I personally have a bit of a vendetta with EA Games but those are with the bigger titles that tend to spark controversy about DLC’s and pricing. This one’s free.
In any case, because it is a feature phone, Nokia’s Asha 202 comes with easy ways to access your Facebook and Twitter feed hacked into the tried-and-tested S40 operating system. Oh and lest we forget, this phone has a touch screen. Price: P3,550.00
But its best feature is the customized ambient sounds that is built into the phone. When you’re talking to someone, you can .. well.. fabricate your whereabouts. From being in transit on the MRT to being on a bike or a restaurant. And you can even add your own. Like .. if you’re talking to your loved one, have the sound of wedding bells in the background! O diba!

EDIT 3: Have a look at the new Patima housing for the GoPro HERO / HERO2
EDIT 2: Instead of hardware, iOS 5.1 users can download the i-Patima app that lets you use the camera underwater. DOWNLOAD IT HERE.
EDIT: Since the new iOS 5.1 update that changes the way users access the camera from the lock screen, Patima is releasing an adapter that will allow you to continue using the iPhone4s as intended underwater.
Some time ago I got word of a pretty little item that would amaze SCUBA divers and iPhone users. Made in Korea, the Patima underwater housing could withstand pressures up to 300 meters deep. That’s almost 1,000 feet and way way beyond recreational depths. Well I finally got the chance to try it out thanks to Jovic of Splash UW Imaging. Before I continue, note that I am not affiliated with Splash UW Imaging in any way nor do I get anything from the sales of this product.
